A local pond/lake near me is being drawn down by i think about 15 to 20 ft. While it is down what should i look for?
I'm guessing high points and low points. But i imagine there are other things to look for when i get a unique look at this lakes bottom.....

And fish it while it is down. Sometimes the fishing is fantastic in big draw downs if it is down for a few days.

Rattle traps, sinkers, rods and reels?

Crankbaits stuck in tree trunks. Especially the trees with a bunch of line wrapped up in it!

Oh, and the above mentioned stuff too.

Look for guns, knives, claw hammers, anything that can be used in court.

Addendum: If you see the roof of a car, just hope it's a cool muscle car.
